In this day and age of database abstraction libraries it's easy to forget about what's going on underneath the hood. Why would you want to know, when the library takes care of it all? Unfortunately, for the unwary there are some gotchas that can bring your application to a grinding halt, especially when you've got more than a few users on your system. This talk looks at a few of the issues you might run up against and how to plan your application around them, or at least be aware of them when it comes time to try and diagnose your struggling application.
